Problem with GIT (checkout)

  • Hi,
    I read the source "README" of Qt-Creater source archive.
    I installed everything needed, but Git starts and after a while, I have that:

    R:\msysgit\checkout>git clone git://gitorious.org/qt-creator/qt-creator.git qt-creator
    Cloning into qt-creator...
    remote: Counting objects: 255482, done.
    fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
    fatal: early EOF
    fatal: index-pack failed

    git is msysgit, perl is installed, VS2010 is used, git in path, perl in path, qt-creator subdir exists.
    And qt-creator dir is gone after that error messages.
    Environment: Win2008R2 (admin rights)

    Thank you for your help...

  • Just keep on trying. msysgit will time-out when checking out large amounts of code (qtwebkit in qt5 is another candidate) but it usually works somewhen.

  • Hi, Lukas,
    is there an alternative to msysgit ?

  • Try using https or ssh as transfer protocol.
    Some point i couldn't clone anything from gitorious using git protocol.

    There should be a cygwin port and a Java implementation called JGit. But I use msysgit on a daily basis and it usually just works fine. I have had these time-out problems but they usually vanish after a few tries.
